The brains behind “Wines That Rock” are as passionate about wine as they are about music. This series of wine is inspired by various rock ‘n roll artists including The Police, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead & more! We’re excited to have these in our store & hope you enjoy them from their beautiful labels to their unique tastes & aromas.
“The art of creating great wine is similar in many ways to making great music. Artists have a vision and share that vision through groundbreaking sound.”
The Grateful Dead – Steal Your Face
A distinctively rapturous mix of Syrah and Petite Sirah results in a wine that is original, funky, and fun, with aromas of bacon, green olive, and earth wrapped around flavours of boysenberry, plum preserves, and mulled spice for a wine that captures the essence of the live energy of the Dead’s iconic album, Steal Your Face.
The Police – Synchronicity
Just as The Police experimentally merged a range of sonic influences to re-emerge with their own ground-breaking sound, this wine’s nuanced flavour-scape creates one dreamily complex whole. Floral, exotic, and meditative, aromas of rose petals and fresh crushed strawberries yield to flavours of red fruit jam, cranberries, and clove.
The Police’s classic Synchronicity serves as inspiration for this custom crafted Red Wine Blend. Fill your glass again, turn up the music, and share the taste of Synchronicity.
The Rolling Stones – Forty Licks Merlot
The 50th Anniversary Edition of Wines That Rock Rolling Stones Forty Licks Merlot is pure Rock ‘n’ Roll in a bottle. This wine is created from premium Mendocino County fruit and features aromas of cherries with hints of apricot, followed by bright flavours of raspberry and strawberry and a creamy black cherry-vanilla finish. A tasty classic that stands the test of time while capturing the attitude of the Mendocino County style.
An enjoyably eclectic mixture of rich pear, mineral, and papaya aromas are followed by fresh flavours of Asian pear, citrus, and tropical fruit on the finish, some have also referred to this as, “Sunshine in a bottle.”
